The Monthly Economic Indicators (MEI) publication is a stock-take of economic data releases.
The MEI is prepared by the Forecasting team in the Treasury. The MEI includes a commentary on the major data releases over the previous month and an annex with more detailed charts and source data.
The MEI will be of interest to those seeking a regular update of developments in the New Zealand economy. The August 2001 MEI was the first public release of this publication on the Treasury website.
In April 2020 the Treasury commenced publication of a weekly COVID-19 Economic Dashboard, which has been included in the Weekly Economic Updates since 31 July 2020. As long as the Weekly Economic Update continues to be published weekly (including the Dashboard), the Monthly Economic Indicators report will not be produced.
You can find these publications on the COVID-19 economic commentary page.
